    How proud their "GOD" must be that they constantly belittle, demoralize, bash, their fellow human beings.

    What acts of civil disobedience do they have in mind? Disrupting gay marriage ceremonies? Throwing themselves in front of the wedding limo? Stealing the flower bouquet toss? Protesting on the sidewalk like Westboro Baptist Church?

    I would actually welcome such antics, put them in the same pathetic category as WBC, to the detriment of their public image.

    My question exactly -- how would they do this "civil disobedience"? Is he encouraging civil officials like justices of the peace and judges not to cooperate with the equality laws?

    Art Deco -- your suggestions are hysterical. LOL!!

    Speaking of WBC -- anyone see the special LOGO aired on Election Night on this unbelievably perverted and twisted group?

    They compare marriage equality to abortion, but that's not a fair comparison. Abortion involves a third party (the fetus) and marriage is strictly between two consenting adults. This will be accepted much quicker than abortion.

    I hope they do.

    It will only serve to strengthen public support for us, as is the case with the Westboro Baptist folks.

    If one or two of them should happen to get hurt as a result of their illegal actions, well so be it. icon_evil.gif

    I may actually have a wedding and invite them. icon_twisted.gif

    Their tactic won't work, apparently.

    You use civil disobedience to bring attention to an injustice, not to simply block an activity.

    I've heard the arguments about natural law from Catholic sources. Hate is not natural, and homosexuality is natural.

    I love both of your points! They won't be using civil disobedience. It will just be hate and violence. There's no injustice for same sex marriage. I've never once thought liking men wasn't natural.

    These people just don't get it. Their point of view is as on the way out as cassette tapes.

    If they're talking about doing anything with some civility, it's a step in the right direction.

    I've said this many times. I prefer the Westboro Baptist Church over these morons. At least WBC is not hypocritical.

    Family Values my ass.

    I think this is another example of conservatives endorsing violence against gay people. The AFA hate group is hoping that mentally unstable or just plain stupid right-wingers will begin to connect gay-bashing with some noble, grand cause.
    In the long run, it does further alienate them from reasonable, law-abiding society.
